William Golding: The Man Who Wrote Lord of the Flies

John Carey

William Golding: The Man Who Wrote Lord of the Flies

In this trenchant portrait, British critic Carey weaves masterful readings of Golding's work with intimate details about his life. Drawing on newly available materials-including Golding's never-before seen journal-Carey chronicles Golding's life from his relatively isolated and unhappy childhood, and his struggles as a young writer trapped in a schoolteacher position, to his winning of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983. Such early praise elevated Golding's first novel to heights that made the novel became better known than the novelist. Despite praise, Lord of the Flies was not an immediate bestseller. Golding's subsequent novels (among them The Inheritors and Pincher Martin) fared little better with critics and booksellers-until 1958, when literary critic Frank Kermode praised Pincher Martin as the work of a philosophical novelist whose great theme was the Fall of Man. As a writer-in-residence at Hollins College in America, Golding had finally earned enough success to be...

Khomeini's Ghost: The Iranian Revolution and the Rise of Militant Islam

From the bestselling author of Saddam comes the definitive biography of Ayatollah Khomeini's Islamic revolution and how his fundamentalist legacy has forever influenced the course of Iran's relationship with the West. In February 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned to Tehran after nearly fifteen years in exile and received a hero's welcome. Just as the new world order sought to purge the communist ideologies of the Cold War, the religious doctrine of Islamic fundamentalism emerged to pose an even greater threat to post-Iron Curtain stability—and Khomeini would mastermind it into a revolution. Khomeini's Ghost is the account of how an impoverished young student from a remote area of southern Iran became the leader of one of the most dramatic upheavals of the modern age, and how his radical Islamic philosophy now is at the heart of the current conflict between Iran and the West. Con Coughlin draws on a wide variety of Iranian sources, including religious figures who knew and...

The Snakehead: An Epic Tale of the Chinatown Underworld and the American Dream

A mesmerizing narrative about the rise and fall of an unlikely international crime bossIn the 1980s, a wave of Chinese from Fujian province began arriving in America. Like other immigrant groups before them, they showed up with little money but with an intense work ethic and an unshakeable belief in the promise of the United States. Many of them lived in a world outside the law, working in a shadow economy overseen by the ruthless gangs that ruled the narrow streets of New York’s Chinatown.The figure who came to dominate this Chinese underworld was a middle-aged grandmother known as Sister Ping. Her path to the American dream began with an unusual business run out of a tiny noodle store on Hester Street. From her perch above the shop, Sister Ping ran a full-service underground bank for illegal Chinese immigrants. But her real business-a business that earned an estimated $40 million-was smuggling people. As a “snakehead,” she built a complex—and often vicious—global conglomerate,...

Lifting the Veil

'Look out! Its coming right at you, jump!' the screaming voice called out. Out of the corner of his eye, Polo suddenly saw it and jumped with every ounce of energy that he had, lifting both of his legs. But it wasnt fast enough or high enough. The cold, wet metal sliced through his right leg as he watched himself being hurtled through the unforgiving air. Landing in muddy gravel, Polo reached down to take hold of his throbbing leg, but much to his horror, it wasnt there. In an instant Polos world vanished. He destroyed anyone and anything that stood in his way, including his wife. The lonely professor isolated himself, pushed her away, and Sara couldnt find her husband. He wasnt there. He wanted only darkness. In Lifting the Veil, S. S. Simpson unravels the cruelty of Polos fate and how his Mexican-American barrio pride fueled his anger and resentment. Join Sara in discovering how light was brought back into Polos life and what it was that finally caused the veil to lift.

If You Fly... Don't Crash!: Confessions of a White-knuckle Pilot

"There are old pilots, and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots." - W.W.

IF YOU FLY. . . DON'T CRASH! (Confessions of a White-knuckle Pilot) highlights some of the good, the bad, and the simply silly aspects of aviation experienced during his thousands of hours airborne.
